The place that brought April the giraffe to the world stage is now welcoming two tiger cubs to the fold. Tigers are an endangered species with about 3,900 tigers left in the wild.

The Tiger Cubs Names

The two cubs that will call Animal Adventure home are brothers and their names are "Bao" and "Ming." Both names are of Chinese origin for Bao (treasure) and Ming (shining or bright).

Their new on-exhibit home will be over 6,000 square feet with waterfalls, pools, viewing windows, overhead tunnels, and raised viewing decks. How do I get a layout like that?

Here's some more amazing news, with the additions of Bao and Ming to the Animal Adventure family, tigers will once again be found (on exhibit) in Broome Country for the first time since 2015.

Can't Make It To Animal Adventure To See These Two New Cubs Right Away?

Remember when owner, Jordan Patch put in a giraffe cam for April so that we could watch her progress while she was pregnant. Of course, we do, the whole world was watching. They have added a new "Tiger cub cam,"  that will let you have a chance to watch Bao and Ming grow virtually.

Animal Adventure Park is open every day from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and you'll have a chance to see these two tiger cubs from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. (weather permitting), so keep that in mind when you head to the park.
